Writing Task 1
The maps illustrate how a city’s layout changed from 1950 to the present day. Overall, it can be seen that significant developments were made toward the south to accommodate the city’s burgeoning population.
In 1950, a river flowed from the west to the southeast, dividing the city into two halves, which were linked by a bridge across the river. There were two major roads, which met each other in the center of the business district to the north of the bridge. Further north was a residential neighborhood adjacent to the commercial district, serving the city’s 20,000 inhabitants. Other notable structures included an airport in the far west and a government building to the south of the bridge.
Nowadays, the city’s population has grown to 200,000. The business district has expanded across the bridge, adding to the southern half of the city, which by now has already featured a new major intersection and one more government building. The midsection of the river has become a dammed lake, where a second bridge has been constructed between the old bridge and the dam. In addition, the residential area completely encapsulates both commercial districts and stretches to both ends of the aforementioned lake. Lastly, the airport has been more developed than it now occupies the southwest of the city.

Writing Task 2
In recent years, early-education specialists have been arguing whether it is better for children to commence formal education earlier than the normal age of seven. Although some claim that this is beneficial in a sense that they can learn new knowledge quickly, the traditional age of seven seems to be the best choice for children to start to go to school because it guarantees better running of classes and provides children with enough time in playgroups and preschools.
Some educationists advocate the idea that as a result of starting earlier and consequently having more time to absorb academic knowledge, children are more likely to be successful in the future. This is because learners of younger ages tend to have better cognitive performance. A child under the age of three, for example, can learn new words twice as fast as those above this age can. This means that they are able to gain knowledge faster than older children, which makes education more time efficient.
There are, however, more significant reasons why children should start their formal school-years when they are seven. The primary reason is that children at this age are more independent, which means they need less attention from their teachers. These teachers can therefore focus on the learning progress of the whole class instead of the individual needs of each child. Starting formal schooling at this age, in addition to this, guarantees that children of lower ages can spend more time playing and learning in informal environments such as playgroups or kindergartens. This contributes to the growth of their creativity and imagination, which are more difficult to develop when these young ones grow up.
In conclusion, educating children under the age of seven in a formal school is associated with certain benefits such as the extra time for learning academic knowledge. These benefits are, however, not as clear and significant as the advantages of sending children to a formal school when they are seven. It is therefore recommended that very young children spend time playing games or joining informal classes in order to cultivate their ability to imagine and think creatively.
